    Anyone else disappointed with the final name? Any reason we as a community should refer to our "custom" GNex phones as Primes anyway?

    Anyone else support this?

    You could call it the flaming pile of dog poo for all I care. I'm just happy to have it in my hands.

    yeah i though about that... wonder if the trademark from transformers kept our phone from going that route, or if asus already staked an official claim.

    I suppose it will have to stay the gnex.

    I personally liked nexus prime better but I just call it a nexus. As Verizon doesn't have any other nexus phones

    I prefer Galaxy Nexus. Prime reminds me too much of the Droid brand and sounds like something made by Mototurd. No thanks

    Prime was a name "we" gave this device almost half a year ago. It was NEVER going to be called Prime according to Samsung.
